    Elway isn't going to give up on Bolles. Although we don't have the depth, Elway is probably forcing Fangio to keep playing him. He's just another first-round draft pick that is not playing or progressing well at all...

    I think we're going to see a lot of these type of memes this season if he doesn't get his stuff together....

    He might be better at DT at this point

    been saying it for at least a year...he should be moved to OG. he doesn't have the feet to play outside but has the attitude for inside.

    I honestly donít know whatís worse at this point, his feet or his hands. Heís doing this weak uppercut motion up the arms of the defender and is content to have his hands on shoulders instead of the chest.

    Can we get a bench Bolles billboard going?

    Whether Bolles plays G or DT he will still likely get flagged for holding.

    I'm sure Fangio has met with Munchak and they will double their efforts to break his habits and teach him proper technique. They have 14 more games to get him on track. If he's still a liability to the offense by the end of the season and proves to be incorrigible and unteachable, then he should be cut.

    either way he needs to show he can be an LT or he will be moved or what not by seasons end

    I honestly don't think he knows how to play the position. He's possibly the worst LT I've seen in years. His technique is bad and he doesn't seem to understand what a hold is. His holds are usually blatant. I didn't think he was good coming out of college. He had a reputation for being rough and physical, but that's because he was significantly older than the DLineman he faced. Swallow your pride Elway, admit you drafted another bust and try someone else at the spot. It can't get much worse.

    Someone did an interview with E. Sanders, when asked if he had talked to Bolles about his..miscomings he replied, " I've talked to him. I've talked to him. We've all talked to him. We'll see."

    He may have a learning disability, he had a poor Wonderlic score

    Bolles score 9

    Hall of fame left tackle Jonathan Ogden score 35

    Munchak needs to sit down with him and see if he is coachable

    The Raiders just cut Jonathan Cooper to make room for Richie Incognito. I wouldn't mind seeing the Broncos bring him in to replace Leary.

    It's the only option left for the Broncos. Either move him inside, or cut him, because nobody will give you anything for the guy.

There are more talented players whoíve been cut just because there arenít enough roster spots. Schlereth talked about this topic today. Bolles will negatively affect the moral of the line and the entire offense. If Fangio backs up the tough talk, heíll bench Bolles when James returns by swinging Wilkinson to LT. Itís nothing personal against Bolles but he better be done as a starter. No way heís earned a second contract. Just another bust in a growing list for Elway.
    gee how big is the list are you keeping track
